Accounting & Reporting Intern

May 2020 Middleton, WI
“I had the opportunity to work with a variety of different accounting teams, allowing for a broader learning experience. I was routinely given projects that allowed me to make meaningful contributions to the departments I worked with. Everyone in the organization is more than willing to answer your questions and offer feedback, as they want interns to have a valuable experience. Interns are presented with multiple opportunities to network with managers and executives throughout the enterprise. This is my second summer interning with TDS Inc., and the culture played a big role in my decision to return.”

IT Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Middleton, WI
“TDS was a great place to intern! I met a ton of people and learned a lot. The company has a strong employee focus, meaning they help you succeed in your position. I had an unofficial mentor during my internship which helped me get even more out of my experience. They also did a lot to make sure the interns were having fun while learning about their role and the company as a whole. We had several lunch meetings where we learned about the company and had the opportunity to get out of the office one afternoon to volunteer at a local park. TDS is also great at making it so you can learn about different areas of the company. If you're interning in one area but are interested in a different department, they give you an opportunity to learn more about those areas which was really helpful. What's even better is that I received a full-time offer at the end of the summer!”
